Modern Greek Studies provides:

  • A sound knowledge of the Greek language and culture
  • an understanding of the cultural diversity that defines Australia, by studying Greek literature and history.

As the language of the first philosophers, physicians and scientists, Greek has given a vast amount of terminology in artistic, medical, scientific and social disciplines. It is very much in use in Australia today, with three major Greek newspapers and numerous radio networks in New South Wales alone.

Australian students with a connection to Greece can explore their heritage, and see how Greek migration contributed to the making of modern Australia.

Key features

  • We encourage students to study in Greece, in a University-run residential course or under exchange agreements. You can study at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki or the University of Athens.
  • Modern Greek studies was established at Macquarie University in 1988.
  • This major has the support of The Greek Studies Foundation .
